Verse:
 D
She
 D
Was only seventeen
Oh, why are girls in songs always seventeen?
 D
She
 D
Was from a movie scene
And now she plays in my head all day
 
Chorus:
 G            A
She called me up
 D         Em
And let me in
  G                 A
I couldn't feel my legs
 

 G             A
She walked me back
 D        Bm
Into her room
             G
But just to see
    A               D
A 1980s horror film
 
Verse:
D
I
 D
Oh, I was so scared
 D
She had the curtains down
So there was no glare
 D
She pulled up a chair
 D
And gave me the bed
 D
And all these crazy things
Went through my head
 
Chorus:
 G           A
It seems so long
 D       Em
I need someone
 G                    A
I don't know what to say
 

 G                A
She was sitting there
D                  Bm
I could touch her hair
            G
But still we watched
    A
A 1980s horror film
  D
Jamie
                      Bm     A
I don't know what to say to you
D
I feel
              Bm          A Em
You're always on my mind
 

               G           D
And now that I know what I need
    A                     Em         G
I'm taking the long way round in my mind
           D
It's not right
 

   A             Em             G
I can't help the way I feel anymore
          D         A
And I need to ask you, Jamie:
Em         G            D              A
Oh, can it be that you feel this way, too?
 

 G               A
The lights were off
 D
The mood was right
 G                     D
She came and laid with me
 

 G                 A
I looked into her eyes
 D
Tried to make her mine
               G
But then she said
  -one strum-
  A
"I'm really not that into guys."
